Wow- how lucky am I?!!

HI!! :)

Well, I'm back with the 'not-exactly-a-card' post I mentioned- I've been meaning to do this since Tuesday (sorry Rachel, if you're reading this- I'll get in touch properly soon hon!! :S) but only managed to get the photo taken last night!! I just have to share with you a pic of the amazing parcel that arrived in the post on Tuesday morning:

All this is the incredible blog candy I won in the lovely Rachel's 'A Digi for M.E.' competition/giveaway (raising money for AYME- The Association of Young People with M.E.- a charity who've helped me hugely in the last 10yrs of living with M.E., please have a look at their site if you've got a minute! :) ) a couple of weeks ago and amazing really is the only word- there was so much in the box I could only just get it all in the one shot!!- from stamps and decoupage to gorgeous flowers and toppers and a set of promarkers, too- sooo many new things to play with!! :D :D And I'll definitely be using some of it to make some cards to sell to raise more money for AYME- how perfect to win all this by raising funds for AYME and then be able to use it to raise more!!

Thank you so much Rachel and all the people who added to the candy!! I'll be crafting up a storm with all this for a long time to come, I'm certain!! :D

I've had a lovely week with all my goodies arriving, having a great time making my tent card on Friday and then yesterday spending an hour out in the garden in the sunshine and eating strawberries and ice-cream- not eating for the whole hour, I hasten to add!! Despite being thoroughly exhausted, all seems good with the world for a while which is a lovely feeling!! :D I hope you got to enjoy the sunshine, too!!

Bye for now- I shall hopefully be back before too long with another card to share with you- and another item ticked off that very long 'June Cards To Do List' I mentioned, after going rather off piste by making the tent card the other day just 'cause i wanted to!!! I also ordered myself a few goodies which arrived last week including some new stamps and another couple of Distress Ink Pads which I've had my eye on for a while... so they'll probably be making an appearance on here soon- it really is so much fun to have a place to share all my latest crafty endeavors with people who love it all as much as I do!! :) I'm desperate to get crafting again but really should probably be sensible and take it easy for the rest of today- how dull!! :S ;)  Thank you for reading!! :)

hugs and smiles,
